Effective as of June 1, 2016
The Services are controlled and operated by Common Sense in the United States, and your use of the Services is not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than that of the United States. We may, in our discretion, decide to limit the Services’ availability, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction we choose, at any time at our sole discretion.
In this Policy, Personal Information means information that can be used to identify or contact a specific individual online or offline, such as the individual's name, email address, phone number, or a persistent identifier that can be used to recognize a user over time and across different sites or services. Non-Personal Information is aggregated information, demographic information and other information that does not reveal a person's identity.
Children's Information. The Services do not collect Personal Information. The Services are used anonymously, with no name or other Personal Information input by the user. Users may optionally tap the "capture this" button within the iOS and Android variants of the Services, which will take a screenshot image of the user's scores in the Services. We do not collect such screenshots. This Policy does not address, nor do we accept responsibility for, the manner in which schools or other third parties collect, use, or share information derived from the Services.
Information Collected Through Technology. We and our service providers may collect certain Non-Personal Information automatically when the Services are used, and such information may include anonymous information about the use of the Services, device type (e.g., iPad Air), browser, operating system (e.g., iOS8.1), and country. We use this information to administer and improve the user's experience on our Services, to help diagnose and troubleshoot potential server malfunctions, and to gather broad demographic information. We use Google Analytics to collect and aggregate this information. We generate a custom user ID in Google Analytics to ensure that a user cannot be tracked across devices, apps, or sites.
Information Retained on Device or in Browser
The game stores username and score data for a player.This information is stored locally on a device for mobile apps, or locally in a browser for the web app, and is not collected by Common Sense or accessible to Common Sense.This information persists until a user deletes it.
We do not collect Personal Information through the Services (and therefore do not use such information). Through the Services, we do collect Non-Personal Information, which we may use for any purpose permitted by applicable law, including maintaining and improving the Services or other services that Common Sense provides.
We may share aggregated Non-Personal Information generated by use of the Services – including data collected via Google Analytics — with vendors contracted by Common Sense to maintain the Services, our Board of Directors, funders, partners, financial supporters and sponsors of the Services or Common Sense for various reasons, such as understanding how to increase the effectiveness of Common Sense's services and the traffic and trends occurring on the Digital Compass Services. In addition, we may share aggregated Non-Personal Information with academic or other researchers and with the news media.
We support the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, and we do not collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13.
No website, mobile app, or device is completely secure or "hacker proof." As such, we cannot promise that a third party will be unable to use the Services for unauthorized purposes, such as attempting to access information stored on a device on which the App is installed. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the section below entitled "Contacting Us." Please note that, if you notify us by physical mail, this will delay the time it takes for us to respond to the problem.
